elle d’en ~ Sarah Crewe

break it up and bring the vowels back
I want you gaping wide open
incredulous smoke signal
siren city      let me hear you
whoop  ooofft  ooooh boom
  prise consonants
apart all change all colours
translate into six letters
into six week carousel
in a post war climbing frame
as a consumer fetishist
1950’s polkadot
dancehall halterneck cupcake
print beyond all minimum
O     you look so pretty in
housewife chic   you wear it well
recession in petticoat
jizz in bangs  elle est   a slut
elle    she bleeds me dry
